A 99 Cent Inquiry

University of Virginia law professor Christopher Sprigman has posted a series of short pieces on intellectual property, and posed this question on Public Knowledge:

Here’s a puzzle: Most music downloads are priced the same — around $0.99. I have a paper coming out — The 99-cent Question — that offers an explanation. But before the paper hits the street I’d be interested in hearing yours. Why do we see hits and non-hits priced at the same $0.99 standard?

Public Knowledge is a group of lawyers, technologists, lobbyists, academics, volunteers and activists dedicated to fortifying and defending a vibrant information commons.
